This is a bit faster processor and 16GB of memory (your going to need that before you rebuild again) faster SSD and you should be able to reuse your old hard drive just install the OS on the SSD then hook up your old drive and reformat it.

The motherboard can be updated without a working processor so that can be done.

For 60FPS the 2070s should be able to do that.

A option for a motherboard that is already updated would be this, if you need WIFI you could add a WIFI card.

1 you get a bit better video card but a bit worse processor.

3 bit better processor and a bit less video card.

Really comes down to the games played but in general I would go for #3. Although I really dislike Asus as a company.

I agree this is not what you wish to hear but anything over 3200 is a overclock setting and not guaranteed without tweaking.

16cas is fairly low for 3600mhz memory what GSkill said is good advise. I would try 3466 manually with the factory listed timings and voltage and from their loosen up the timings just a bit.

I would start memtest let if run for about 10 minutes to get the memory good and warm then restart it (memtest not the PC) and let it run about 8 hours. After the restart 1 error is a fail.

I stress test the CPU, GPU, and memory at the same time on all new builds or after upgrades / overclocking the PC. Most new builders don't know to do this it puts the system under a load that in normal use the PC will never really reach but makes sure everything is stable and all temps are OK.

To use what you have you would connect the controller to the motherboard, add the additional PSU power to the controller then use one splitter cable connected to where you would connect one of the fans to the controller then you can power all 5 fans. The controller says it's rated for 3A using the power supply connector for the controller.

I would agree with Tactless.

Anytime you add more memory even another set of the exact same their a chance it just won't work.

I would sell your 2X4 set and buy a (faster) 2X8GB set.

Yes you can overclock.

Is it worth it might and might not be depending on what your doing.

The video card is already overclocked from the factory so usually not much left to overclock them and not worth trying to get 3 to 5 more FPS.

With good cooling you could overclock the processor but it would depend on the games your playing and the monitor used if it would really help with the video card you have.

Their a ton of guides on overclocking on the internet I would not use software but do it in BIOS.
